Apelle is a wooden one family house located in Karjaa, Finland. The building rests in a natural harbor like a boat in a sheltering pocket surrounded by bed rocks and trees. The interior space of Apelle is a continuous tube that grows gradually along the house and through the main opening and terrace into the forest. Along this axis the collective and private actions are tuned according to the times, functions and needs of the day and night.

|Copenhagen Harbour Architecture, Denmark - article by Rebecca Breun for e-architect
"Over the last decade the harbour and ports around Copenhagen have been vacated, and the city has launched an impressive attempt not only to link the newly developed areas on the island of Amager, situated opposite Copenhagen proper, to the old city centre, but also to animate the waterfront on both sides...Until recently only two bridges linked the two city parts together, and the waterfront itself was often not open to the public. Now it is possible to walk, bicycle or roller-skate along most of the front with two additional bridges linking new areas together while making sure you don’t have to walk back on yourself."

What you need to know about safety and diamond blades
Home repairs or construction sites can be dangerous places. Do you know that a person is killed every four days and many more are injured because of not taking seriously basic safety measures? Also, diamond saw blades can be a real threat if you don’t care about reading instructions manuals.
Don’t let your work go to waste and follow some basic safety rules.
First: Legal obligations Ask you employer about anything you don’t consider irrelevant while he does. The boss is in charge of providing legal care to all employees. Specially when working with blades or any other sharp construction equipment. As an employee, you have a legal duty under the Health and Safety at Work Act to take care of all of your employees and, of course, yourself.
